Featuring more than 1,650 contestants from 43 states, five Canadian provinces, Australia and Mexico, the NHSFR is the world’s largest rodeo. In addition to competing for more than $200,000 in prizes, NHSFR contestants will also be competing for more than $350,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named an NHSFR World Champion. To earn this title, contestants must finish in the top 20- based on their combined times/scores in the first two rounds-to advance to Saturday evening’s final round. World champions will then be determined based on their three-round combined times/scores.
